90 min have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur could make a shock move for Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui. 

Over the last 48 hours, an increasing number of reports have talked up the possibility of Tottenham making an approach for Ange Postecoglou.

In fact, The Sun even reported on Thursday morning that the Celtic boss could be confirmed as Tottenham’s head coach as early as next week.

The publication claimed that the Australian was keen on taking up the challenge in N17 and that the Bhoys hierarchy are resigned to losing him.

However, The Telegraph contradicted that claim last evening, suggesting that other candidates are still being considered by Spurs, including Fulham‘s Marco Silva.

The report revealed that the Portuguese coach has a release clause of around £6m in his current deal but he is in discussions with the Cottagers over a new contract.

90 min have now stated that Tottenham could also turn to another Premier League boss in the form of Lopetegui.

The Spaniard has done a commendable job since replacing Bruno Lage at Molineux Stadium back in October of last year, and it has now emerged that Spurs have been alerted to his availability.

The 56-year-old had previously confirmed that he had turned down an offer to become Spurs head coach in 2021 before the club hired Nuno Espirito Santo (El Larguero).

Lopetegui is an excellent coach and he has done exceedingly well to guide Wolves to a 13th-place finish, given the mess that the club where in when he arrived.

However, Tottenham need a charismatic coach with fresh ideas to galvanise the playing squad and the fan base, and the Spaniard does not seem like a particularly good fit.
